in massachusetts were opposed to trials being held in the united states. to have the terrorist trials to be held in civilian court. that plus the detroit bombing on christmas day which the administration totally mishandled and has continued to mishandle, i think the democrats in the congress, you know, are genuinely getting nervous. i thought from day one, i said this was the most irresponsible decision any president ever made to hold these trials in new york city. and democrats were lined up hyped the president almost 100%. it's only in the last week to two weeks that they started to really feel the heat and they've started to read the political tea leaves. so, whatever the reason is whether it's coming out of new york, i don't think it should be in any civilian court in the united states. >> paul: that's a question i want to ask because the president white house spokesman let it be known they want it to be a civilian trial, the marrow posed to it and democratic senators, but maybe somewhere else. you're saying no way, you don't want them to be tried as civilians at all. >> i think it's wrong a
